From Wikipedia as it is short ::
The Big Four was a nickname given to the four Superintendents in charge of the Criminal Investigation Department at Scotland Yard, the headquarters of the Metropolitan Police, from about 1919 onwards.[1]

They were:

Albert Hawkins,[2]
Arthur Neil,[3]
Francis Carlin,[4] and
Frederick Wensley.[5]


I have known for a while it was the Big Four. So the big Five of MA predates AR, who used the big Five. He would not make that mistake.
